Fall in Love Twice / by Rebecca Tillett

I realized recently, that I’ve been steadily re-falling in love with him over the last six months that he’s been here. That’s a weird feeling: thinking you know and love someone so unconditionally and wholly but realizing there’s so much more to this person that you couldn’t possibly fall in love with before he was able to stand half a foot in front of you and put his arms around you while whispering “God, you’re beautiful and shit, do I love you so much.” I’ve been fortunate enough to fall in love with him twice. Did you know that was possible? I sure as shit didn’t. It’s an unearthly and dreamlike experience.
